Erkki-Sven Tüür Radio, Television, and Internet Broadcasts

Last Update: April 7, 2004

International radio broadcasts are becoming more available to anyone with a high speed transfer rate on their computer modem. Most broadcasts are available in one of three dominant formats: Real Audio, Apple Quick Time Player or Windows Media Player. In some cases, all formats are even offered as an option. All of these audio players in their basic formats are commonly available as free downloads. Usually, an upgraded version is available for an on-line payment.
It is important to keep in mind the time zone differences for broadcasts originating from locations at great distances from yourself. e.g. evening concerts from Europe are commonly "on-air" from noon to early afternoon in North America / evening concerts from North America are commonly "on-air" from early a.m. hours to early morning in Europe.
